I think I am getting there! Changed the wheel bearings on the offending side tonight, and the shimmy seems to be gone. Still a little bit of brake judder left, but I discovered that I probably didn't tighten the bearings enough. A good deal of grease in the, I suspect it moved a bit when it got some movement in it. I could just feel a little bit of play after I came back from a 10 minute test drive.

How hard should it be to turn the hub when tightening with a wrench - before releasing again and setting the nut by hand? Spin the hub before setting the nut, or just tighten - release - set? At least I know the bearings are fresh, and the cups are properly set in the hub.
